Superfund Site Profile

The 470-acre Sharon Steel Corp. (Midvale Tailings) site is located in Midvale, Utah. From 1906 to 1971, a smelting and ore milling facility produced lead, copper, zinc and other metals at the site. Facility activities and waste management practices at the site contaminated air, soil, surface water and groundwater with heavy metals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2004.
